DateAdd documentation error?

Post by kdtrog » Sat Apr 24, 2021 11:37 am

Today I stumpled over a DateAdd problem. I wondered because "DateAdd>thedate,D,1,result" did return the same day. But when I used "DateAdd>thedate,DD,1,result" the next day was returned.
Is ther a problem in the script manual examples?

Well I found the reason. Within the script I created a variable "d". Maybe it will help somebody else in the future.

You'd be surprised at how many times a single letter variable assignment has caused a problem like that. Well done for getting to the bottom of it. We never stop learning. :)
